Global and Local Land Markets

Kojo Amanor


This presentation examines:

The problem of defining the 'local', since it is only made visible by the 'global' and the 'urban'.

The problem of defining the 'customary' historically (the customary largely defined and codified by colonial rule and appeals to the past and precedence).

The role of power, the market and social differentiation in defining the local.

The implications of institutionalising customary land administration for rural people and the peasantry.
